About Me: 

I am a sex worker rights activist, artist and educator that has a passion for justice.♥ I have travelled around the U.S and internationally showcasing my art and music, speaking on panels and learning from others in their home countries. I am very interested in a web 2.0 journalism project. I have written for my own blog for the last 3 years, which is a memoir and a portal for my activism and creative writing. I was a high school English teacher in low income schools/programs for 3 years. I have a Masters of Education in Social Justice Education from UCLA. I used my experience as social justice educator in my sex work activism. I founded a non profit in LA. I burnt out on non profit work in LA. I am focusing on things that make me happy first. I am interested in LGBTQ rights, education, art, immigration, reproductive justice and medical marijuana.
